Interesting, a pity it focuses more in the ups and downs of the brand and less in the clothes themselves.

The brand is now sold in Debenhams and the other day much of their stuff was being sold at 30% off but you wouldn't touch their stuff with a barge pole . Their shirts , despite having a button down collar are massive and what a duff name too. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

The Debenhams stuff is shoddy and not really true DstG

The Duffer Tokyo lines are quality and on the whole very nice designs in my opinion.

Yeah, Duffer was brilliant for a small period of time, but even back in the day some of the stuff was dodgy from a modernist perspective (Puffa jackets and sweat tops) but when they got it right it was mint! The beautiful knits that they did have admittedly influenced Connection Menswear.

Barrie Sharpe still knocks out some nice gear for his Sharpeye label.

and he also designed some nice Yardies for Mendoza

But "St George by Duffer" is a long way from the original Duffer of St George.
